1 Hail the day that sees him rise, Alleluia!
to his throne beyond the skies; Alleluia!
Christ, the Lamb for sinners given, Alleluia!
enters now the highest heaven. Alleluia!
2 There for him high triumph waits, Alleluia!
Lift your heads, eternal gates, Alleluia!
He has conquered death and sin; Alleluia!
Take the King of glory in! Alleluia!
3 See! the heaven its Lord receives, Alleluia!
yet he loves the earth he leaves, Alleluia!
Though returning to his throne, Alleluia!
still he calls us all his own. Alleluia!
4 See! he lifts his hands above! Alleluia!
See, he shows the prints of love! Alleluia!
Hark! His gracious lips bestow, Alleluia!
blessings on his church below. Alleluia!
